PARIS FASHION WEEK 2017 EXCLUSIVE: How To Achieve The ‘Wet’ Look

The Look

Makeup Artist: Val Garland

Val Garland described the girls at Roland Mouret to have “New Orleans Tanned Glow: Hologram Filters of color, reflected texturization of skin.” She wanted the girls to appear ready for summer with slightly bronzed skin with sweaty eyes and a hydrated mouth. Garland focused on preparing the face. She refreshed the skin with MAC Mineralized Charged Water Face and Body Lotion and gave it a golden glow using Mineralize Skinfinish in Barely Dressed. The all-important cheek bones where perfectly lit using Mineralize Skinfinish in Perfectly Lit. To create the eye and eyebrows, Lipglass in Clear and Studio Eye Gloss in Clear as Glass were applied over the eyelids. Finally, the lips were juicy and had a subtle sheen from Lipglass in Clear. anchor-mouret-2051-ss17-pw_72dpi

Eyes & Lips: Lipglass in Clear, Studio Eye Gloss in Clear As Gloss


Pair It With Summer staples in pastels. Focus shifts to upward dressing with emphasis on the neck and shoulders. Dropped sleeves, cutouts, one-shoulder necklines, vests and other decorated bodices are in order. Mouret adds an extra-long grosgrain ribbon on the neck for extra sophistication.
The Look

Makeup Artist: Val Garland

“It’s the glossy-posse.” Val Garland was referencing the lit face of Amy Wesson on the cover of Self Service back in the 90s, her inspiration for Moncler Gamme Rouge SS17. To re-create this radiant look, Garland began by applying MAC Mineralize Moisture Foundation on the face in a circular motion. She then created a mixture of Dimension Skinfinish Double-Gleam with Lip Mix and brushed it on the eyelids and lips. Because you can never have enough highlight and luminosity, In Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Double Gleam was swept on the cheekbones and bridge of the nose.

Pair It With Structured pieces in pristine whites. Just like Giambattista Valli, pledge support for France and all that it has been through with ivory, crème or beige. Add a stripe of red and blue to structured macramé jackets, drawstring pants, shorts, t-shirts and tri-colored slippers. The idea is to look like a fashion solider marching in a défilé against any form of terror.
